Bartolo Colon suspended for drug violation

Post  RSoxGuy on August 22nd 2012, 5:02 pm

A’s starting pitcher Bartolo Colon has been suspended 50 games for a violation of Major League Baseball’s Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.

Colon, 39, reportedly tested positive for testosterone. He will miss the final 40 games of the regular season and 10 postseason games if the team makes it that far.

The A’s were 1/2 game behind the Orioles and Rays in the American League wild card race going into Wednesday’s game.

Colon is the second Bay Area player to get a 50-game suspension in the past week for elevated testosterone. Giants outfielder Melky Cabrera was suspended Aug. 15.

“It’s a shock,” A’s reliever Grant Balfour said. “He’s a guy that we’re definitely relying on right now. I guess you could say it’s bad timing any time, but especially now.”

Colon has enjoyed a resurgence this season, going 10-9 with a 3.43 ERA.

Like Cabrera, Colon issued an apology and accepted his penalty.

“I apologize to the fans, to my teammates and to the Oakland A’s,” he said in a statement released by the players’ association. “I accept responsibility for my actions and I will serve my suspension as required by the Joint Drug Program.”

i dont blame them for trying. I cheated all the time in football and baseball when i played. I did not use any roids or supplements but i used to use illegal screw on cleats, got in late hits, and used sand paper in my glove.

I seriously do not give a shit if people use roids or not, who care. what difference does it make in a skill game like baseball? if you cant see the baseball or have the dexterity to make a pitch, roids arent helping you out
